  1. @oracle I need to save some money for a portable AC. The window mounted kind is out of the option because we have here no sliding windows. Last year it was bearable but the streak of hot days recently is killing me right now.

  2. All that effort is for nought. As I have woken up the temperature is as it was before.

  3. Staying awake as long as I can so I can keep my windows open in order to cool down my apartment. It was announced that there will be 34°C. I want to use the cool 20°C air for giving me a buffer.

  4. The bat boys are out. I'm counting around 4 bats but it's difficult to tell them apart when counting because they are flying in circles. I'd like to make pictures but then I would incidentally take pictures of my neighbours with their open windows and I cannot put their privacy over blurry bat pictures.

  6. Today bats are flying in my neighbourhood. I just saw 4 flapping in front of my window and catching bugs.

  7. AAAH! I grabbed the wrong package when shopping. I wanted pineapple juice but I grabbed instead a tropic juice mix that contains some pineapple. I don't like those.

  9. Star Trek The Lower Decks is something. Half as bad as imagined. It has somewhat of a hyperactive American Dad vibe with sprinkles of Rick & Morty and a huge bucketload of fan fiction. I'll watch a few more episodes but it gets very grating with all the hyperactivity and screaming. They had to establish a lot in 22 minutes and make it interesting and funny, I get it that's hard. The characters there are so not TNG it hurts somewhere inside me.

  10. @scribus The world needs a mark at the end of the sentence to signify an sarcastic intent more than ever. I propose the ↓ because everything goes down at the moment.

  11. I often hear English-speaking people say "comprable" for the word "comparable", omitting the first 'a'. Just noticing, not judging.

  12. @scribus One Bundesland (State) here in Germany has opened their schools this week under some terms like wearing masks in the hallways and segregating the school building into manageable sections for contact tracing and spreading out the school day as much as possible to reduce the amount of people. The number of active infections there is low but I sense it'll backfire nonetheless in a week or two.

  13. @scribus I have The Matrix and I believe it had a few scenes with alternative camera angles. But that's all I believe to know about that feature. It's cool and all but to be honest it's a papayaty feature.

  14. @scribus DVDs support different camera angles for scenes but this feature was poorly used if at all.

  15. More than a second time doing a multiple choice episode isn't worth it. Hitting all the bad endings the second time around is easy enough.

  16. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt multiple choice episode/movie is quite fun. They even poke fun at skipping the title theme when trying to skip it.

  18. @scribus I saw that on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah and The Late Show With Steven Colbert. I had to instantly laugh when I saw that each time. Make-up, firemen breathing masks, masks in hospitals, masks at mask balls, face paint at sports events and Carnival (Mardigras) and Halloween.... ALL SINNERS!

  19. @scribus As far as I could seen in the videos nobody has used religion as an excuse. I've seen more messages about being fed up by the government and being told what to do, and being inconvenienced, as well as skepticism of the whole pandemic and the virus itself.

  20. I admit that I was lenient towards this at the beginning and didn't take the whole thing very serious, however I did my usual things like proper hygiene and my natural behaviour of avoiding people, but very soon I did everything right with wearing masks and such. I had underestimated the outcome and spread before. But after all of the evidence I cannot fathom why people can be still so stubborn.

  21. Germany has also stupid people. 17000 people without masks and without distancing themselves from others demonstrated against the corona politics in Berlin today. I mean: WTF. At this point I hope they all die because it seems that's the only way stupidity dies.

  23. We can only hope Trump gets infected with covid and there will be no chance that he gets re-elected. Unless it's a zombie virus, just with a very delayed effect.

  24. @scribus An Atari Magazine? Mate tea lemonades are here en masse. There are at least 7 different brands. Club-Mate, Mio Mio Mate, Mate Mate, Lamate, Maya Mate.... (a few others i forgot the name of).

  28. HAHAHA. My caffeine resistance is remarkable. I drank 6 cups of medium-strong black tea and a lemonade with about twice the caffeine concentration of Coca-cola and I was still tired all the time.

  29. Because it is. A lot is similar but strangely skewed and makes more sense when read in context.
